This Weeks New Releases – W/C 6th November
It’s a big, big week in the world of Xbox this week, with some anticipated titles heading our way, but that’s not to say we’re forgetting the biggest release of them all – Xbox One X. Released Tuesday 7th November, this Xbox is labelled as ‘The most powerful console released’, and judging by some of the reports already, we’re in for a treat.
But let’s get down to what new releases you could be playing on this new beefy machine this week:
Tuesday 7th November
Defeat enemies with blazing speed as Modern Sonic, catapult past perilous platforms as Classic Sonic, and create your very own Custom Hero Character equipped with a variety of powerful gadgets. Experience fast-paced action with these three unique gameplay styles, explore iconic stages, plus, fight across unique added content with Shadow as a playable character!
Super Lucky’s Tale
A delightful, playground platformer for all ages that follows Lucky, the ever-optimistic, energetic, and lovable hero, on his quest to find his inner strength and help his sister rescue the Book of Ages from Jinx. Jinx is the scheming and mysterious villain trying to reshape the world, but for what reason?
Hand of Fate 2
The Dealer has clawed his way back beyond the thirteen gates to seek his revenge! The table has changed, yet the stakes remain the same: life or death! As in the original Hand of Fate, adventurers explore a dark fantasy world built from collectible cards distributed by a magical dealer in a meta boardgame. Each overturned card reveals a new trial: third-person combat, high-risk high-reward minigames or Tabletop RPG-style decision making.
Wednesday 8th November
In 911 OPERATOR, you take on the role of an emergency dispatcher, who has to rapidly deal with the incoming reports. Your task is not just to pick up the calls, but also to react appropriately to the situation – sometimes giving first aid instructions is enough, at other times a police, fire department or paramedics’ intervention is a necessity. Keep in mind, that the person on the other side of the line might turn out to be a dying daughter’s father, an unpredictable terrorist, or just a prankster. Can you handle all of this?
Friday 10th November
Need for Speed: Payback
Set in the underworld of Fortune Valley, you and your crew were divided by betrayal and reunited by revenge to take down The House, a nefarious cartel that rules the city’s casinos, criminals and cops. In this corrupt gambler’s paradise, the stakes are high and The House always wins. Play a varied and challenging world of events as Tyler; the Racer, Mac; the Showman and Jess; the Wheelman. Each driver must take on races, missions and challenges to earn the respect of the Valley’s underground and compete in the ultimate race to finally take down The House.
So whether you want to run at lightning speeds with Sonic Forces or race at lightning speeds with Need for Speedor if you simply want to chill out and do some collecting, there could be something for you this week, if not for the Xbox One X itself.
